Kratom Microdose- Stimulant and Painkiller
The following is my first experience taking Kratom. I've had previous experience with cannabis and common psychedelics, though I hadn't had any large doses of either within two weeks of this experience.
t+0:00 I chose to microdose to assess the potency of the batch I had just purchased online, and decided to begin with 0.2g of Green Maeng Da powder. I consumed it with the Toss and Wash method, which works well to block the flavor of the powder. Nonetheless the taste was somewhat unpleasant, but far from unbearable. At the time of consumption I felt quite tired and sore due to a workout 2.5 hours prior.
t+0:45 I feel dramatically more alert while still retaining some fatigue underneath- like drinking a strong cup of coffee. The soreness in my lower back had greatly reduced, as if the exertion that caused it had occurred days ago. Otherwise, I experienced no other sensory or visual effects.
t+2:45 The stimulant and analgesic effects were beginning to noticeably wear off. I dosed an additional 0.2g (weighed out on a balance) in the same way as before. Soon, I felt the same effects as before- alertness, energy, and a significant reduction in muscle soreness.
t+5:00 I felt the effects beginning to diminish again to <1/2 of the original effect. The short duration of microdosed Kratom means it's unsuitable for a day-long subsurface experience (as is seen in microdosed LSD, for example). However, this suggests great utility in microdosing Kratom for its stimulating and analgesic properties. should the user wish to avoid the stomach irritation and long-term stimulating effects characteristic of caffeine. Between this and the painkilling properties, I can see myself repeating this experience on a regular basis, being careful to avoid habituation and tolerance by not redosing daily.
